The University of Texas at Tyler baseball team ended its two-game skid by sweeping an American Southwest Conference East doubleheader with UT Dallas on Saturday afternoon at Irwin Field. The Patriots took the first game, 5-3, and shutout the Comets in the second game, 7-0.
In game one, UT Dallas second baseman Chris Bigunet did the same thing in his first at bat today that he did yesterday, hit a 2 RBI homerun. However, Bigunet would not be the only one going yard on Saturday afternoon as junior Joe Towns (Carrollton, Texas) hit a two-run homer in the first and solo shot in the third. The homeruns were UT Tyler’s 30th and 31st of the season.
